Sheffield City Council

17 Jan 2011

The FibDem council have honoured their promised threat and have issued dismissal and re-engagement letters for the second time in twelve months.

GMB advice is not to sign the council letters seeking your agreement to accept incremental freezes. Although the letters may seem like an instructionthey should not be signed. All you need do is report for work as normal on 1st April 2011 when the new imposed contract takes effect.

Anyone in doubt should contact their local GMB convenor:
